One Word: Cherish

I began this blog with my one word for a year at the beginning of 2013. In 2014, I didn’t choose a word, but looking back, I see that my word was probably FAITH and conquering FEAR.

I am a big goal setter. I love to make goals. I love to plan. However, as I set goals sometimes they are about getting, being and doing more. That is perfectly fine in it’s place, but at this point of my life I feel I need to step back and learn how to savor what I already am, what I already have and what I already do.

“Joy is not getting what you want. It’s fully appreciating what you have.”

– Mark Batterson

So, here is my word for 2015:


We don’t use the word cherish very much anymore. Here is the definition that I want to apply to these 15 areas of my life this year:

to hold or treat as dear; feel love for: to care for tenderly; nurture
To do that takes intention of course, so I do have some goals. But most of them are about taking time to enjoy what I’ve already been given. Maybe I’ll write about them this year. Or maybe not.
I may be too busy enjoying them to record them.
What’s your word for the year?
